Here is my best explanation:

'more aristocratic' is the definition.
('noble' can be similar in meaning to 'aristocratic')

'aristocrat? the french are say' is the subsidiary indication.
'aristocrat?' becomes 'nob' (I've seen this in other clues).
'the french' becomes 'le'.
'are say' becomes 'r' (are sounds like r).
'nob'+'le'+'r'='nobler'
